The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park has specific rooms for different aged children, full of age appropriate resources catering to the needs of babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

The older children are able to freely access the garden area from their room at any time, and carers encourage them to make their own decisions on where they would like to play.

The nursery has its own garden area that allows the children to play outside all year round. One section of the garden has been designed as a beach, giving the children the freedom to explore and experiment with texture and volume.

There is a dedicated, loyal team of 24 colleagues who help children to have the best start in life in a bright and modern nursery setting.

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.159 for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (7 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.159

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.643 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.643

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I have had bad experiences with the management, being requested to hang around in the morning because staff are running late - not great when it means you're late for work/have a train to catch. At times the invoices are incorrect so need observing/checking and administrator is not in every day.

The staff who care for the children are excellent, I couldn't wish for a happier child and the development had been outstanding since starting here. Overall, I would recommend this nursery. Minor complaints but most of the time I couldn't wish for more for my child.

Our daughter has always been very happy here. The children get plenty of opportunities for outdoor play in almost all weathers, which I think is important. The staff are very friendly and caring, and were happy to accommodate my wishes for my daughter to use our own cloth nappies and to eat fruit rather than the occasional puddings the children are given (the food appears to be very good!). My only slight issue has been some confusion in communication with management.

My daughter is in ladybird room and really enjoys it. She only started in Jan 2017, but the staff are lovely and have helped her settle in well. They do a good range of activities during the day and my daughter always comes home exhausted, so I know she's had fun!

My little girl had a negative experience at a previous nursery and was really upset and distressed about going to nursery at all. I made the decision to move her to the Co-op nursery as my niece attends a different one, but has had such a great experience there.
After my daughter started it took a little while for her to enjoy attending but with such a great support network and a reassuring team of assistants and staff she absolutely loves it now which I didn't think was possible. I am incredibly impressed with the communication and professionalism and with how helpful everyone is. Thank you very much.

This is an excellent establishment where my daughter is looked after in a safe, caring environment where she is challenged on a daily basis. She loves going to nursery and always runs in with a big smile on her face ready to give the staff a hug. The range of activities that she takes part in is vast and changes on a daily basis. She loves the freedom of playing outside in the garden which is well equipped and the food cooked always goes down well. I'd highly recommend this nursery and had my second daughters name on the waiting list before she was born!

I can not fault the Co-operative nursery at Madley Park.
My child loves attending (part time), her confidence has soared, she is growing and developing in all areas, which I believe the staff at the nursery have had a direct impact upon.
They provide meals that are well thought out and balanced.
There is regular and open contact from the managers, as well as the staff working directly with the children being friendly and approachable.

The team are so friendly and my little boy has a lovely time every day he's there. The transition to going from being at home full time to going to the nursery was so easy for him and I think that is down to the staff. They make genuine connections with the children. There is a lot of variety in food and it's never junk food that is served. Some days they even have two hot meals a day which is excellent. The communication from the nursery is brilliant as well.

Managed brilliantly. Staff help children feel safe and cared for (settle in well and quickly). Offer great support and advice. Children are happy and stimulated. The chef ensures food is balanced and nutritional with cooking sessions every other week.

I took my child out in December 2016 for a number of reasons including cleanliness and care of my child and lots of staff changes including agency staff. My child was allowed at 2 to go to dirty toilets on her own and often came home with soiled knickers and when I told a member of staff they didn't care.
